El Anatsui: 'Five Decades'

The multicolored shirt that Ghana-born, Nigeria-based artist El Anatsui was wearing at the launch of his first Australian solo show, 'El Anatsui: Five Decades' at Sydney’s Carriageworks, clashed harshly with his multicolored monumental sculptures, which hung in elegant swags within the venue’s industrial space like shimmering medieval tapestries.
